My mother was very intentional about raising my sister, Maya, and me as strong, Black women. She coupled her teachings of civic duty and fearlessness with actions, which included taking us on Thursday nights to Rainbow Sign, a Black cultural center near our home. There we were always greeted with warm hugs and exposed to extraordinary people like Shirley Chisholm, Nina Simone, and Maya Angelou who helped show us what we could become. This #BlackHistoryMonth, I want to lift up my mother and the community at Rainbow Sign who taught us anything was possible, unburdened by what has been.

Gopalan’s breast cancer research work “sparked many advances regarding the role of progesterone and its cellular receptor in breast biology and cancer, “the world of women affected by breast cancer changed for the better because of [Gopalan’s] presence in it.” said Breast Cancer Action’s obituary.
Aame oka scientist. Breast cancer pai aame chesina research prapanchaniki marga darsakam aindi.

My mother, Shyamala Gopalan Harris, was a force of nature and the greatest source of inspiration in my life. She taught my sister Maya and me the importance of hard work and to believe in our power to right what is wrong. There’s no one I’d rather honor this first day of #WomensHistoryMonth.
